PAX 09: Destructoid community meetup plans!

3:20 PM on 09.03.2009 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

PAX is less than 72 hours away now, and I know all of you coming this weekend are excited beyond belief. In fact, there’s a handful of people, including a bunch of the UK Dtoiders, in Seattle right now awaiting the big gaming party this weekend.

Thursday: At 5:00PM, Dtoider pendelton21 is getting this image made by our comic guy, Mikey, as a tattoo. Yes, really! He’ll be at Apocalypse Tattoo getting the ink.   

The Elephant & Castle, located right underneath the Red Lion Hotel, is the main rendezvous point for Destructoid all weekend long. If you're ever feeling lonely, just stop by the bar and you'll likely find people hanging outside (weather permitting). At around 7:00 PM, the group will be splitting up -- a bunch of people are going to a fancy dinner while the other group stays at the Elephant & Castle. 

At 9:00PM, both groups will be meeting up at Shorty’s on 2222 2nd Avenue, #A, and we'll all be staying until last call.

Friday: PAX TIME! Congrats to pheonix-blood, Dexter345, KyleGamgee, Toneman, LostCrichton, DJDuffy, The GHost, Tactix, Pangloss, pendelton21 and Kryptinite, who will all be taking on Mr. Destructoid duties as they walk the show floor from 10:00AM to 8:00PM.

From 12:00 to 1:00PM in the Unicorn Theatre is the “Hey Ash, Whatcha Filmin: How to make a moderately successful viral video series that confuses the hell out of people” panel. 

At 2:30 to 3:30PM in the Raven Theatre is the “How can we make online gaming communities suck less?” panel, hosted by Destructoid. DO NOT MISS THIS PANEL! Seriously, it’s going to be epic. Also, be sure to wear your Destructoid shirt at this time, as we’ll be taking the annual big group photo right after the panel. P.S. This is where you'll come to pick up your "Become" Dtoid shirt!

Then, in the evening, find Destructoid at the Elephant & Castle again at 10:00PM partying it up.

Saturday: Suit night! Various members are bringing their suits and dresses to dress up for the evening just because they want to. Plus, you’d want to look good while doing some karaoke at the The Crescent, wouldn’t you? Don't worry though, you DON'T have to dress up. You can show up in whatever you'd like to wear. Karaoke fun time will start at 9:00PM.

Sunday: Let’s drink the night away in style over at The Whisky Bar at 8:00PM. Plus, it’s near the water. 

Monday: Everyone cries, says their goodbyes and starts planning for PAX East and PAX Seattle 2010.

The plans can change on the fly, so you best be following on Twitter Hamza CTZ Aziz, Niero, Colette, Samit Sarkar, Nick Chester, Dale North, Jordan Jevore, Rey Gutierrez and Jonathan Ross so you can stay updated on all the plans throughout the weekend. 

See you all very soon!

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

Team Fortress 2 just got a massive community-made Invasion update. SFM short, reskins, cosmetics, and 4 brand new maps?!?! God, I love this game and its wonderful community so, so much. [youtube][/youtube]

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
